Aligning Your Head & Heart

"The expression of divinity is in variety." ~Sheri S. Tepper

If you are someone who longs to follow your soul's path and purpose - you most likely struggle with the balance of what your soul needs and what your head wants.  

You may struggle with ensuring you are being responsible with your everyday decisions  - and taking care of your basic life necessities - while also honoring your soul and the evolution it craves.  

So, as with everything in life that we strive for, balance is needed.  Not balance in a perfectionism way, but balance in a way that you're acknowledging all your needs- especially the needs of your heart and your head - which are very different.

Dealing with Uncertainty

When you feel stressed, unsure and insecure about the future - what do you crave most?  The familiar?  What you know vs. what you don't know?  

It's so common to want to know and to be steeped in the familiar. 

Yet, if you truly want to step into a different life and experience new things for yourself and your potential - is KNOWING really what you need?  Knowing what's going to happen may be what you want - but is it what you NEED?  

I get it.  It is so much easier to want to cling onto the familiar because it gives you a sense of security - a sense of knowing what is going to happen.  But - how can things truly change if you know what's going to happen?  Wouldn't that create more...

Toxic vs. Healthy Shame

"Your problem is you are too busy holding on to your unworthiness." ~Ram Dass

In my work with people, the best way I can describe them hovering over a worth issue is when they know what it is that they truly desire and want  -  yet they struggle with a hold-back  a block of not being able to experience it and they have no idea why.

The best analogy I heard for this was described by Debbie Ford in one of her books where she said (which I'll paraphrase): The feeling is like being stuck in a glass capsule. On the outside you can see what it is that you desire. You are close enough to almost touch and taste it  - but you're just far enough away to fully grab on and claim it as yours.

Can you relate with this glass capsule...

How To Focus On What You Want

“To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles.” ~T.F. Hodge

You’ve most likely heard the expression – Energy flows where your focus/attention goes...so true but have you learned how to put this Truth into practical application in your life?

I bet there is an area, or maybe several areas, in your life that feel out of alignment with how you’d ultimately like them to feel/be.

Maybe it’s in the area of your career – or finances – or relationships – or your health/well-being.

Whatever the area(s) is that you want to change, you are most likely focusing on what isn't there (aka lack thinking) vs. what is already there (abundance...

Fear Of Getting What You Really Want

Don’t let the opinions of the average man/woman sway you. Dream, and he/she thinks you’re crazy. Succeed, and he/she thinks you’re lucky. Acquire wealth, and she/he thinks you’re greedy. Pay no attention. She/He simply doesn’t understand.~Robert G. Allen 

In my practice I work with people who are at two different stages of their career aspirations. 

One scenario is you’re at a stage where you’re seeking a more meaningful experience with work and life - and need clarity on what that vision looks like and how you can formulate it and bring it into fruition. 

The second scenario is, you already have a BIG Vision in mind and you now know it’s time to step-up and step-out...

Courage To Make A Change

Are you on the verge of making a big change in your life/work?  Or, do you have a deep desire to make a big change?  

Do you know exactly what you want to see and have change - or is that vision fuzzy?  

Either way, if you know in your heart and soul that a change is needed - it's having the courage to take the steps to make that change come to life - that is the biggest challenge.  

One day, as I was contemplating making my own big changes - I stumbled upon a card in the store that simply read:  Trust In Yourself.  As I backed up to look more closely at it, the whole title read:  “Trust In Yourself to Make a New Beginning”

Intrigued, I opened the card and read through some beautiful wording that described how difficult, yet exciting, it can...

Fear of Being Too Much

 “It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.”  ~Marianne Williamson

If you’ve been on the self-discovery path for a some time, there is no doubt that you’ve come up against, wrestled with and hopefully transformed your “not enough” beliefs.

 And, even though each new level that you go to, you’ll inevitably face new “not enough” beliefs, rest assured that you’ll no doubt continue to tackle these as you have the tools and awareness you’ll need. 

 Yet, what about when you face “too much” beliefs? 

“Too much” beliefs don’t get talked about as much – but they are just as prevalent on the Claim Your Worth!® path – and can be just as...

How To Overcome Regret

“Dwell in possibility”  ~Emily Dickinson

When you make the all important decision to live the life you’re destined to live, you will go through a myriad of emotions.  One biggie of an emotion is the “should-a, could-a, would-a” effect – where you feel “if only” I had done this – or “if only” they had done that – or “if only” it could of worked out this way.    

Having regrets about your past and/or present circumstances, not only hold you back from manifesting your highest vision, but regrets also drain your energy and keep you steeped in old self-defeating programming and patterns. 

To regret is to feel a sense of loss, disappointment, and an...

Fear of Loss

Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out.  ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Steeped in the need for growth and feeling worthy of experiencing and having MORE in your life – comes an,  almost always unconscious, ambivalence around wanting to grow but being afraid of it at the same time.

What's at the core of this is?  F.E.A.R.  

Sure, there is fear of change, fear of the unknown and going to a new level and what that will require of you.  But at a deeper level - there is a fear of losing what you have now - when you gain something new.  

In other words - the fear of loss.

This fear is there because of a...

Moving Beyond Your Limits

"Rise above yourself." ~Thomas Leonard

As the quote referenced above,"Rise above yourself", means to push yourself past what you think is possible for you and go deeper within to continually discover your Real Potential.

The goal is to go deeper into what you have no idea could possibly happen but you secretly hope it would/could.

I remember learning this lesson at the gym - when one of the instructors explained why we did 5 very intense rounds of the same exercise for only 30 seconds and then had us rest in between.

He explained the philosophy of pushing yourself very hard - as hard as you can for 30 seconds and what what you realize is: most likely you'll start at a level 7 and realize - as you push yourself beyond your limits - that by the...
